Beginning in May, the City of Mesa Planning and Zoning Board (P&Z) will meet twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 4 p.m. in the Upper Level Council Chambers, 57 E. First St., Mesa. Until this change, the P&Z met once a month.
The addition of a second board meeting is part of the City's on-going effort to provide timely review of land use applications and improve its customer service. The addition of a second P&Z meeting has also enabled the City to implement a corresponding application submittal deadline for P&Z cases on the first and third Monday of every month, instead of once a month.
Another major improvement is providing a formalized conference for applicants to discuss review comments with City staff prior to resubmitting revisions to their land use application documents. The purpose of this meeting is to help resolve review comments and keep projects on schedule. With this improvement, the development community and residents can properly plan their project schedule and know the specific review timelines, as well as have the opportunity for more assistance from City staff in the land use review process.
Under the new schedule, the Mesa Planning and Zoning Board will meet May 8 and May 22. For more information, visit www.mesaaz.gov/city-hall/advisory-boards-committees/planning-zoning-board.
